Fire Door Surveys

Fire doors and their installation are a fundamental part of a passive fire protection system. They are designed to stop the spread of smoke and fire between fire compartments.

Given a fire door’s function within a building, they are also significantly more susceptible to damage and general wear and tear than other elements of passive fire protection. If fire doors are not maintained properly or replaced at the end of their useful life this could cause a breach to the fire compartment.

HOW OFTEN DO I NEED A SURVEY?

The frequency of fire door surveys will depend on the type of building you are responsible for and who occupies it. Buildings such as schools and hospitals are subject to heavy traffic and the doors are subjected to repeated use – and sometimes misuse.

Although BS9999 recommends six-monthly inspections and includes guidance on some of the main inspection criteria, you are responsible for ensuring adequate inspections and maintenance routine is in place. We can advise you on the best inspection plan.

Fire Door Passport

As part of the fire door inspection process Adaston can create electronic passports for each fire door to ensure all works are documented in one place and there is complete transparency between all parties. This is ideal for clients wanting to electronically document planned preventative maintenance (PPMs), have an audit trail of inspections and any remediation performed on doors.

At the start of the process all details of each respective door are added to the system, including when the door was installed and the specification. This can be used to guide lifecycle planning for the replacement of doors, PPM schedules and contains a full history of all work performed on a fire door throughout its life.
